Oclaro Announces Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2018 Financial Results

SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Oclaro, Inc. (Nasdaq: OCLR), a leading provider and innovator of optical communications solutions, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2018, which ended June 30, 2018. Oclaro will not hold an earnings call, nor provide forward guidance for the first quarter of fiscal year 2019, due to the previously announced proposed acquisition of Oclaro by Lumentum Holdings Inc.

"I am very happy with the results that the Oclaro team delivered both for our Q4 and full fiscal year 2018. Despite the negative revenue impact of U.S. Department of Commerce sanctions that prevented us from shipping to ZTE during Q4, we had another strong quarter. We once again had a record revenue quarter for our ACO product families and our high-speed, data center laser chips. Our non-GAAP gross margin and operating income remained strong, enabling us to generate $19 million in cash," said Greg Dougherty, CEO of Oclaro. "During fiscal year 2018, we delivered outstanding performance, achieving 39% non-GAAP gross margin and 17% operating income, while generating approximately $66 million in cash.

"As previously announced, we recently received overwhelming stockholder approval for our proposed merger with Lumentum, which we continue to expect will close in the second half of this calendar year. Should this be our last earnings press release, I want to thank our stockholders, customers and employees for the support that you have provided to Oclaro and me personally over the past 5 plus years," said Mr. Dougherty.

Safe Harbor Statement
This press release contains statements about management's future expectations regarding the plans or prospects of Oclaro and its business, and together with the assumptions underlying these statements, constitute forward-looking statements for the purposes of the safe harbor provisions of The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Investors should not unduly rely on such forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements include statements concerning (i) the timing of the closing of our pending merger with Lumentum, (ii) Oclaro's future financial performance and operating prospects and (iii) the statements in our CEO's quote. Such statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts and may contain words such as "anticipate," "estimate," "expect," "forecast," "project," "intend," "plan," "believe," "will," "should," "outlook," "could," "target," "model," "objective," and other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with any discussion of future operations or financial performance. There are a number of important factors that could cause our actual results or events to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements, including (i) the risk that our pending merger with Lumentum Holdings Inc. does not close, due to the failure of one or more conditions to closing, (ii) disruption from the merger making it more difficult to maintain our customer, supplier, key personnel and other strategic relationships, (iii) uncertainty as to the market value of the Lumentum merger consideration to be paid in the merger, (iv) the risk that required governmental approvals of the merger (including China antitrust approval) will not be obtained or that such approvals will be delayed beyond current expectations, (v) the risk of litigation in respect of either Oclaro or Lumentum or the merger, (vi) our dependence on a limited number of customers for a significant percentage of our revenues, (vii) competition and pricing pressure, (viii) our ability to effectively manage our inventory, (ix) the absence of long-term purchase commitments from many of our long-term customers, (x) our ability to meet or exceed our gross margin expectations, (xi) the effects of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, (xii) our ability to obtain governmental licenses and approvals for international trading activities or technology transfers, including export licenses, (xiii) our ability to timely develop, commercialize and ramp the production of new products to customer required volumes, (xiv) our ability to respond to evolving technologies, customer requirements and demands, and product design challenges, (xv) the effect of tariffs or other restrictions on trade between the U.S. and China, (xvi) our dependence on a limited number of suppliers and key contract manufacturers, (xvii) our ability to grow our revenues in the future by increasing the percentage of sales associated with new products, (xviii) potential operating or reporting disruptions that could result from the implementation of our new enterprise resource planning system, (xix) our manufacturing yields, (xx) our ability to conclude agreements with our customers on favorable terms, (xxi) the impact of additional restructuring charges we may take in the future, (xxii) the risks associated with delays, disruptions or quality control problems in manufacturing, (xxiii) fluctuations in our revenues, growth rates and operating results, (xxiv) changes in our effective tax rates or outcomes of tax audits or similar proceedings, (xxv) the impact of financial market and general economic conditions in the industries in which we operate and any resulting reduction in demand for our products, and (xxvi) other factors described under the caption "Risk Factors" and elsewhere in the documents we periodically file with the SEC.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Oclaro provides certain supplemental non-GAAP financial measures to its investors as a complement to the most comparable GAAP measures. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to non-GAAP gross margin rate is gross margin rate. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to non-GAAP operating income/loss is operating income/loss. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA is net income/loss. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to non-GAAP net income/loss is net income/loss. An explanation and reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP information is set forth below.

Oclaro believes that providing these non-GAAP measures to its investors, in addition to corresponding income statement measures, provides investors the benefit of viewing Oclaro's performance using the same financial metrics that the management team uses in making many key decisions and evaluating how Oclaro's core operating performance and its results of operations may look in the future. Oclaro defines "core operating performance" as its ongoing performance in the ordinary course of its operations. Management excludes certain items from its view of Oclaro's core operating performance, such as impairment charges, deferred income taxes, restructuring and severance programs, costs relating to specific major projects (such as acquisitions), non-cash compensation related to stock and options, impairment of fixed assets and inventory and related expenses, certain other income and expense items, and the tax effects thereof. Management does not believe these items are reflective of Oclaro's ongoing core operating performance and accordingly excludes those items from non-GAAP gross margin rate, non-GAAP operating income/loss, non-GAAP net income/loss and Adjusted EBITDA. Additionally, each non-GAAP measure has historically been presented by Oclaro as a complement to its most comparable GAAP measure, and Oclaro believes that the continuation of this practice increases the consistency and comparability of Oclaro's earnings releases.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America. Non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation from or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA
Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as net income/loss excluding the impact of income taxes, net interest income/expense, depreciation and amortization, net gains/losses on foreign currency transactions, as well as restructuring, acquisition and related costs, non-cash compensation related to stock and options, and other unusual one-time charges, specifically identified in the non-GAAP reconciliation schedules set forth below. Oclaro uses Adjusted EBITDA in evaluating Oclaro's historical and prospective cash usage, as well as its cash usage relative to its competitors. Specifically, management uses this non-GAAP measure to further understand and analyze the cash used in/generated from Oclaro's core operations. Oclaro believes that by excluding these non-cash and non-recurring charges, more accurate expectations of its future cash needs can be assessed in addition to providing a better understanding of the actual cash used in or generated from core operations for the periods presented. Oclaro further believes that providing this information allows Oclaro's investors greater transparency and a better understanding of Oclaro's core cash position.
